Author Topic: Just Sharing my Leatherworks  (Read 841 times)

I just wanted to share some pictures of the various leatherworks I've been working on. I have a few more projects about to be done that I'll share here as I can.

This is a flower I did on a rounder.



These are some practice tooling I did for a belt pouch that is almost finished.




These are the sides of the same belt pouch.



This is a coin purse I did as a birthday gift for my best friend.







This is an experiment on doing celtic knotwork, since I'd never done it before. If I do it again, I think I could do much better if I did it again, since I have some new tools and a better idea of what I did.



I hope you all enjoy it. I'll be doing some more specifically steampunk stuff very soon.

Very nice. I dabbled in that a bit, but never got very good. Looks like you're on your way.

You guys are two kind ^_^ I basically just decided that I wanted to make my own leather stuff because it's freaking expensive to buy it, and just really enjoy it. I do have a commission from a friend of mine already :O Will be sharing it, as well.

I really like the impression of depth you are achieving with your designs; they really are lovely work and skillfully crafted.

Yours,

Particularly like the little coin purse - very good work from a beginner in leather. Keep up the good work, Mme. Ratchet.  Smiley

I've been tooling leather for decades, and I have yet to achieve such cleanness and clarity of the tooled lines, especially with the edging tool. It's not just being kind to say so, it's the actual truth!

So this morning I tooled up a pair of extra bracelets, one with a tri-weave stamp and one with a design that kinda flopped on me because I forgot to use a guideline to keep it straight. I will finally be doing my friend's celtic knotwork bracelet in a bit, and when it's finished, I will post pictures of all three so you guys can check them out Smiley

I did this pattern here all free-hand, since I forgot my guideline.



This one is the tri-weave and I like it so much more.

Both have come out very nicely; you'd never guess the top one had been done freehand.

Are the flowers Wolf Bane? An antidote/protection against Werewolves? Either way...not bad work  Smiley

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Nice work!

You've inspired me again to make a couple of leathery things, what with the Asylum looming and all...

As if I haven't go enough to do!  Grin

Carry on- these are great!

I'm actually not sure what kind of flower it is. This is the line drawing that came with the kit lol I *believe* it's suppose to be a tulip, judging from the very long stem and kind of elongated flower petals? But that's a guess on my part.
